So it is indeed digital. I am surprised at how good it sounds.

To much background noise to get for me get an idea of how it sounds.

+plus he said they are going to tweak it.

And solo section is polyphonic, that's nice. From what can be heard in the video it sounds nice, but propper demo is still needed.

is it just me or did the Ensemble effect seem overbearing?


i've had a few stringers and while they did suddenly add magic when activated they didn't wash out the sound to this degree.

might just be me. might just be the video sound quality. blah blah blah...

The audio quality is not good in the first video (smartphone mic?).

Here is another video with better sound quality. ;)

Watch on youtube.com

"...like an old string synthesizer, known for example is the Solina String Ensemble... Uuuuuuhm, what else was there...? Uuuuuhm, Hohner String Performer and such things..." :D

Interesting: registration parameter sweeps through the registers. LFO modulation on it as it seems.

Best question: "Ok, and the Streichfett works only with this thing [the midi keyboard] here?" [...] "Ah ok, so I can hook it up to my DAW... so virtually fatten it up again with the Streichfett..." (sic)

He guesses street price around 240 (€ I guess).

Gotta love Frankfurt each year :lol:

Seems they sent a totally clueless guy to that interview :D

He was probably told to remember two words, MIDI and DAW and go.

So, digital, and it has a filter but no easily accessible controls?

*goes back to his drawing board*

C'mon Ashe, vintage stringers weren't exactly knob-fests either... :stop:

Not looking for knob fests. Looking for a stringer I can control thru MIDI. Preferably a 1U rack. (had a discussion about this with Marc at NAMM)

Just found this on youtube, line in demo.

Watch on youtube.com


Am wondering why the thing has no filter? EDIT: well kind of a filter, but no satisfying cutoff and ress knobs :lol:

A little bit of a let down thinking about it.

I can see the appeal if it could do a good arp omni (that has filter controls). That was a good sounding stringer. Would buy one but not crazy :lol: .
